When I woke up this morning, the thumb and index finger on my right hand were numb.  Three hours later, and they're still numb. I realized that if I were a normal healthy person, I'd shrug and think "must have pinched a nerve somewhere". Since it's me, my immediate thought is "oh, no! My neuropathy is spreading!" The inflammation in my elbow and spine from the RA is pinching nerves that cause numbness in my feet and left hand, so this could be more of the same. I'll have to keep an eye on it and mention it to my Neurologist the next time I see him.
